My Review:
I was generously given a copy of book 1, Guardians: The Girl in return for a honest review.  So thanks Lola for the book!
 
While i have only read a few books about angels this one really stands out among them as one of the good ones. I found myself reading it so long sometimes at night, i would look up and all of a sudden it would be 4am when it only seemed as though minutes passed. I'll try to give my review without giving away too much of the book but i'm not always so good at doing that so here's to hoping haha. The book center's around a group of angels called Guardians who are sent to Earth to basically save the world, and they only get one clue which ends up being a girl named Emerson (or Emmy as she is often called), so she is essentially thrust from her life into a world of angels and gods and evil that has apparently surrounded her all the time though she never knew it. The thing i liked about Emmy is that she had always felt like she was unwanted, but she was still willing to help save a world she didn't feel she should be in in the first place. I found that to be a very good quality in her. Emmy ends up falling for the first Guardian, Marcus who returns her feelings but is with another of the Guardians, which causes quite a bit of problems for the 3 of them to say the least. There are 6 Guardians who need Emmy's help to like i said, save the world, and they have to do so while at the same time protecting not only themselves from harm but Emmy as well as the evil of the world wants to destroy what they are trying to save. All the Guardians were very likable (AMimi .... maybe not as much as she is the you-know-what of the crew) but the rest of them were very likable and had quite entertaining personalities. I really liked that the book could go from everything to being find to possibly the death of someone within a few pages, there is alot of action in this book which i also found enjoyable, it was not overdone as some books are. Overall i would definately recommend this book, it has drama, romance, action, good vs. evil, forbidden love, race against time stuff - so if you like that kinda thing you will definately like this book, i very much enjoyed it and look forward to the other books in the series. Happy Reading!
